The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland is an independent Scottish Charity and works with the Scottish Government as a strategic intermediary in health and social care with core funding for that purpose. Our vision is for a Scotland where people of all ages who are disabled or living with long term conditions, and unpaid carers, have a strong voice and enjoy their right to live well, as equal and active citizens, free from discrimination, with support and services that put them at the centre.
The aim of the Links Worker Programme is to support people to live well through strengthening connections between community resources and primary care in deprived areas in Scotland.
We are expanding our Links Worker Programme into new GP practices across the city.
The Senior Community Links Officer (SCLO) will provide a person-centred service that is responsive to the needs and interests of GP practice population living in an area affected by socio-economic deprivation and work collaboratively to manage a cohort of Community Links Practitioners (CLP) and providing support to the Programme Manager to ensure that the team is properly resourced and supported to fulfil their roles and responsibilities and deliver on outcomes.
You must have experience of working with people who are experiencing complex social and emotional circumstances, and a strong understanding of the challenges faced by people living in areas of socio-economic deprivation in relation to living well and have previous line management experience.
PVG Scheme membership is required for this post.
